Happy Birthday Moon Lake

I again use the blendabilities background to stamp an image from Moon Lake.  I just love doing this technique, but alas there is another technque that I want to try - but not for this card.

Colours used for this background:  Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake

The image, from "Moon Lake" was stamped with Black Stazon ink directly onto the background paper, and then the image was die cut using the Windows collection framelit die.  This was adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake that had been die cut using the Apothecary accents framelit.  This in turn was added to a Bermuda Bay die cut using the other shape of the Apothecary accents framelit.  Both Apothecary Accent dies were paper pierced using the paper piercing pack and paper piercer.  Also, all edges were sponged with Early Espresso ink.  The sentiment, from "Petite Pairs", was punched with the small oval punch and adhered just below the image.

The base card is Bermuda Bay cardstock, layered with Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  The edges of these were sponged with the Early Espresso ink as well.

Horizontally, in the middle, is a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock matted with Bermuda Bay.  I trimmed the long end of a piece of 1 1/4" striped Bermuda bay ribbon and frayed it, and then attached it to the horizontal band.

The image piece was attached to the middle of the card over this band.
